I have 3 of these, Thermaltake BlacX ST005U - Thermaltake BlacX ST0005U External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5” & 3.5” USB 2.0 & eSATA

One is at work, 1 is connected to my HD DVD cable box, the other attached to my home computer. They work great, hence reason that I bought 3 of them.

Thanks for the suggestions, I've done some research and can't find either of those in an online shop in my area.
